This and That


1. We took the kids to the Ice Castles in Midway and it was awesome. A true winter wonderland.

2. We have been doing the celery juice thing for almost two weeks. I have eczema so I want to see if it helps. So far, I haven’t seen any miracles, but it can’t be hurting. I am going to keep going and see what a full month does.

3. Super Bowl Sunday is only a few days away and we can’t wait. The boys want to get Patriots balloons and make a Patriots cake…ha! They know how to party.

4. I got this for Christmas and it is so awesome. It is easy to use and I have made some great ski videos.


1. New this week, the perfect recipe for the Super Bowl and an easy and healthy snack!

2. Love everything about this one!

3. This palette is so good.

4. Tried these and now I know why they get great reviews! Love them!

5. What are you making for the Super Bowl? We are having a party and can’t wait to watch the big game. This year we are doing lots of appetizers and desserts. It will be a big spread! If you need ideas, check out our best game day recipes here. Our pretzel bites are always a huge hit and so is this sweet and salty snack board. FYI-this is the board I use. I always get questions:)

11. What??? Valentine’s Day won’t be the same. I don’t really like the candies, but they ARE Valentine’s Day. Curious, what is your favorite Valentine’s Day candy? Give me a box of chocolates…so I can take a little bite out of each one. Yep, I am that person:)

12. I need a bowl of these for lunch.

13. Guaranteed coziness!

  1. I am so excited for the Superbowl. GO PATS!!! I usually make buffalo wings but I’m making your honey bbq instead, they sound delish. I am going to the kitchen now to make the energy bites yum. I hope you and your family enjoy the game

  2. Hi. I noticed Josh’s trouble with eczema. I too have had problems with this for many many years and nothing really seemed to help. It’s always worse in the Winter and most creams just seem to make it redder and more itchy. Just this year I have had luck with Skin Gel. Basically it pretty much aloe in a gel. But it has been working very well. I got it at a local food co-op but I see it’s on Amazon too.

  3. I am soo excited about the SuperBowl this year. I attended the sent off rally on Sunday…me and 35,000 other fans! There was such a great energy in the air.  I am so fortunate to live in an area that has such amazing sports teams and so happy to hear there are fans on Colorado too!!
    The salty/sweet tray pictured is gorgeous…I might be making a mini version for the small party I am having.
    Go Pats!!!
